Another day and another release of our new Windows Central App for Windows 10 and Mobile.
Following yesterday's build 19 with the option to hide QR codes comes build 20. That version is now rolling out to the Store and with it hopefully some improvements in app performance and loading especially on Windows 10 Mobile (the PC version is much faster for obvious reasons).
Here is what you can look forward to with today's release, which should be on your devices in the next few hours.
Windows Central build 1.1.20 (Build 20)
- Improved article loading experience
- Reduced memory usage for article viewing which should result in fewer crashes
- Refresh indicator on the main page
- Improved article header formatting
Many of these fixes are some of the top issues users have reported on our Windows Central UserVoice page so make sure you keep taking advantage of that tool to help us help you.
There is, of course, still work left to do but as you can see we're tackling groups of issues and pain points as fast as we can. Things like haptic feedback on article loading and some Live Tile improvements are likely slated next.
Update: App update is live now, but we noticed a few small bugs including hyperlinks going back to default blue (instead of matching theme); we'll be pushing out a hot-fix shortly.
